LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the actions of his senior adviser Dominic Cummings, who is under pressure over a journey made during lockdown, were understandable.

Johnson’s office has said Cummings made a 400-km (250 mile) journey to ensure his 4-year-old son could be properly cared for as his wife was ill with COVID-19.

“I think that what they did was totally understandable,” Johnson said at a news conference on Sunday.

“I think any father, any parent would frankly understand what he did and I certainly do.”
